SharperLending LLC Partners with Ellie Mae to Deliver Real Estate Appraisals to Lenders via Appraisal Firewall

Mortgage technology provider SharperLending LLC announced today that it has partnered with Ellie Mae®, a leading provider of enterprise-level, on-demand automated solutions for the residential mortgage industry, to connect SharperLending’s Appraisal Firewall product to Ellie Mae’s Encompass360®loan origination system. The direct-data integration provides mortgage banks, community banks and credit unions working in Encompass360 with seamless access to Appraisal Firewall, where they can work with their own trusted local appraisers, get valuation quality control solutions, and comply with all appraisal regulations.

Appraisal Firewall is a secure, web-based real estate appraisal technology solution for lenders to manage their own appraisal process and work with their trusted local appraisers and AMCs in a single system. Appraisal Firewall helps lenders comply with all appraisal independence regulations, including Dodd-Frank, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), Interagency Appraisal and Evaluation Guidelines, internal and investor requirements, plus GSE requirements for lenders to submit UAD-compliant appraisals electronically to the UCDP.

The integration with Appraisal Firewall enables Encompass360 users to exercise tighter control over their appraisal workflow by selecting the type of appraisal provider they need - either their known and trusted appraiser panel or, for specific wholesale/investor requirements, Appraisal Management Companies. And, as additional requirements over appraisal process activity are implemented by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), Encompass360 users can prove with every appraisal order that all regulatory rules were followed. All of this is done right from within their familiar loan origination and processing system to avoid process interruption and training time.

"This integration gives lenders additional appraisal process efficiency while reducing costs and lessening the impact of appraisal regulations," says Dave Black, President and CEO of SharperLending LLC, the company behind the Appraisal Firewall technology. "Now users of the Encompass360 technology have another option to access to their appraisers, appraisal reviews, appraisal management companies, plus a full suite of quality control and compliance solutions."

“We are pleased to be working with SharperLending to provide our joint clients with another efficient and compliant way to order and manage appraisals inside Encompass360,” said Richard Roof, senior vice president of business development at Ellie Mae.

The integration is now available to all Encompass360 users. Interested parties can click here to learn more about the integration.
